YESTERDAY, July 28, 2020 a date which will live in infamy Dr Winston O’Boogie was suddenly and deliberately misled in a search by the algorithm forces of the Empire of Excite.com. 

Dr. Winston O’Boogie was at peace with that Search Engine, and at the solicitation of the “contact us” button on that site, was still in texting conversation with its Customer Service department toward maintenance of peace in cyberspace.  Indeed, one hour after Excite’s search results had commenced giving results to queries such as “what is the speed of light” with sites such as “why Trump’s farts smell like moldy avocadoes”, the Excite Customer Service text AI delivered to Dr. Winston O’Boogie’s inbox a formal reply to a recent message.  And while this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing “contact us” discussions, it contained no threat or hint of cyber war or rerouting O’Boogie’s searches to sites about parakeets eating diarrhea. 

It will be recorded that the distance of Dr Winston O’Boogie’s basement from Excite’s headquarters makes it obvious the this attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the Excite Customer Service has deliberately sought to deceive the Dr. Winson O’Boogie by false expressions of hope for improved service and better search results.  There was even included a discount on becoming a premium member.

The attack yesterday on said search results has caused severe damage to Dr. O’Boogie’s moral and peace of mind.  I regret to tell you that very many minutes of time have been lost. In addition, Dr. O’Boogie’s fingers have been reported sore from excessive “try again” attempts to try to obtain satisfactory search results. 

Yesterday, Excite.com also launched an attack against Spock, a legendary dodge ball instructor with special insight into medicine and politics.  Attacks were also carried out against Quaker Oats, a philosophical master, Sports and Lady, a Woke Hipster, Jmog, and engineering wonder, and Justincredible, a libertarian outcast. 

Excite has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the realm of the intrawebs.  The facts of yesterday and today speak for themselves.  The persons of Ohio Chatter have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and happiness of our hours spent hauling ass down the wasteful Rabbit Hole. 

As Commander of Awesome states, he has directed that all measures be taken for our defense. 

But always will our whole site remember the character of the onslaught against us.

No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated affront, the Ohio Chatter users in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.

"They're not instantly telling me exactly what I want to hear to support my personal biases!!!! I'M DONE WITH THEM!!!!!"

No one cares, dude. You're an idiot who automatically believes anything that supports your views and automatically dismisses anything that doesn't as "fake". If a search engine is "manipulating" results so that isn't working for you, then they are doing it right.

Just Breitbart. If they aren't doing blogs on something, then it just isn't important enough to look into.
